Thats hard to pick.

DP 18 is an all time favorite, some of the music played on those three discs is as good as it gets.

I love DP 23 as well, I couldn't live without that other one. Its also got my favorite mamu. Among other solid performances. And yes, DP 36 is legendary. They're all great.

May I give some praise for DP 32. An all time favorite LIG. The china > rider is superb. Music > sugaree > music. classic mamu > big river. Great release.

I'm with you Wisconsin, 18 is my favorite, 23 a close second (also my favorite mamu). Least favorite, #19, nothing really stands out except that last disc.

Nice!

Yea DP 18 is just out of this world good. A younger friend of mine couldn't believe the scarlet > fire jam when he heard it last week.

And isn't that MAMU a rocker? I love it with bobby coming in ripping from the start. An excellent performance. And a jazzy/spaced out other one that pales all other versions like. Everything is really great though, playin, china rider, etc.

DP 19, its pretty decent though I do hear ya a bit. Its never grabbed me like it has for some others, or like other DPs have to me. Go take a listen to DP 27 and lemme know how 19 sounds ;)

DP 30 is probably my least fav./listened to. I've yet to be blown away from anything on that release. Anyone with suggestions?

What I like most about that mamu is the very last spooky chord from the guitars and piano, they never really achieve it quite so well as this night and Billy has some serious jazz chops going. Have you heard DP 25? Not really the best playing but it sounds as if the band is having a blast, one of my favorite dancin' in the streets. #34 and #11 have been gettin a lot of play lately as well...

haha. hell yea man that dancin is killer! I discovered it last year sometime and played it a lot. I love the laughter and vocal fun they have during it, but the jam is certainly no slacker. Unfortunately it has one of the lamest other ones I've ever heard. However the LIG is seriously good and well played, followed by a killer 78 style deal. I also like the CRS. A good release certainly.

DP 18 is my favorite and the biggest reason why is that 2/5/78, the 3rd disc was my first show, my wife's first show and my brother's first show and we still go to shows together 33 years later.
